Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2feathers seem to fall slower than bricks because of air resistance if you drop a feather and a brick in a vacuum, they will fall at the same rate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i recall some physics test i had taken and the question was asking of something was true (as in true for the most part) and i showed that it was false since it had an exception.
